Course and features
The Wallagaraugh River rises below Mount Poole, approximately 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) northeast of Nungatta, in New South Wales. The river flows generally south, then east, and then south, crossing the Black-Allan Line that forms part of the border between Victoria and New South Wales, joined by eight minor tributaries and flowing through Nadgee Nature Reserve, before reaching its confluence with the Genoa River at Coleman Inlet, east of Genoa in Victoria. The river descends 423 metres (1,388 ft) over its 66 kilometres (41 mi) course.
North of the Black-Allan Line and within Nadgee State Forest, the Princes Highway crosses the river.
